Such enormous claims are seldom true, but I hope they are. Because fuck cancer!
Chemo companies hate announcements like this.
not to be a smart ass or anything, but has anyone ever just tried using snake oil as a cure for cancer?
Wouldn't it be ironic if actual oil made from snakes had miraculous healing power?
While chemo does save lives, I've seen what it does to people and I'd really rather it went away entirely because we have something better.
Isn't that called antivenom?
The cure was right in front of our faces in plain sight! Been a snake it would have bit us, as the saying goes.
You and I do, but the people making shit tons of money off chemo maybe don't.
If I had a time phone, I'd tell my grandmother not to bother with it.
She died anyway, it bought her no extra time at all.
She could have spent those months doing more things she enjoyed, instead of being in a white room with a bag on her arm.
I've read most doctors who stare down terminal illness usually opt out of those life "extending" procedures. Probably worth examining why that is.
A 30 to 50 something with young children? Sure, those months and years may mean more to them than a 75 year old who's had a decent life.
If I'm still alive at 80, I wouldn't bother with any treatment beyond pain pills and weed.
Unfortunately I think that the most likely thing here is that this company is simply looking to attract publicity. Very few specific details and the claim itself doesn't even really make sense, as indicated in the article.
Yes, that seems likely. It's probably one of those "miracle just around the corner" stories and the miracle never materializes.
hmmm......so that 25 cent resistor I can solder onto my car's fuel line won't give me 85 miles to the gallon? Oil companies are terrified of this resistor!
